Tips to face Aurelion Sol

One of the best ways to counter Aurelion is to keep a good distance (or get very close to him), as his greatest damage will be with his passive and his W does more damage, so getting close to him quickly will put him in trouble, as long as he doesn’t hit his Q as he will stun you.


One of the most known assassins in the mid lane, both for his damage and mobility. Not only that, his R allows you to dodge abilities like Aurelion’s Q or his own R, so you can make him a devastating combo.


If Zed doesn’t seem like a good champion to you since he is a mid AD and you need an AP in the middle, fizz is your champion. It offers a simpler gameplay, and a counter to Aurelion. With the Q we can approach to be able to auto + auto reset with the W and E to dodge the Q (you can alternate the combo if you have already launched the Q or R) lowering his life considerably and trying not to eat the damage back when you finish your combo.


The nine-tailed vixen, a champion that cleans waves well, has mobility with her R a charm (E) that leaves you unable to do anything to the enemy + a % of extra damage you do to the target, and with sustein. Undoubtedly, you can do great burst damage if you play aggressive, and if you play passive you can be at a very high range.


Diana, assassin, ap, with dps and cc with her R, what more do you want? Even if she can hit you with her Q you will have another jump to jump over her and with your R you apply slow, damage, and CC, making her completely viable to counter Aurelion Sol.
